Join the spinners of Pinellas Weavers Guild to celebrate Roc Day as part of your new year's celebrations. Our annual Roc Day event will be held at Heritage Village in Largo on Saturday, January 9th, 2010. We will be at the Fiber Arts House from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and plan to do mini-classes and demonstrations, tell funny holiday stories, recruit potential new spinners and weavers, and generally have a fun time. There will also be vendors selling fiber and spinning equipment, and a fiber exhibit by our members.

Roc Day, also known as St. Distaff's Day, is the traditional time for women to put away their holiday baking pans and get back to fiber. The name comes from the distaff used in spinning linen, also called a roc, which was the medieval symbol of women's work.
